A brief outline of my research project

Lucy Stone’s doctoral research explores the juvenilia made by children’s author-illustrators Judith Kerr (1923-2019) and Tomi Ungerer (1931-2019) in the Nazi era. These juvenilia (drawings, illustrated books, letters and poems in German, French and English) tell a fascinating story of childhood exile, child artists and writers, a child survivor of the Holocaust (Kerr) and a war child (Ungerer).
